Standalone Sunday // Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley

Happy Sunday, nerdlings!

A little late in posting this, but hey… here it is!! Let’s see which standalone books we were recommended for this week’s Standalone Sunday!


Standalone Sunday is a feature created by yours truly where each Sunday we will feature a standalone book (not part of a series) that you loved or would recommend! There’s tons of focus on books that are part of a series… I thought it’d be nice to focus on some standalone novels, too!

Feel free to join in on this weekly feature by creating your own Standalone Sunday post! And you’re more than welcome to use the image I created. Link to your post in the comments below or make sure you link back to this post so I can check it out and add you down below!

→ Note: If you want to participate, but haven’t read many standalone’s, feel free to create a post featuring a standalone on your TBR, or one you want to read. The books you feature can be standalone books that look/sound good to you! It’s not a requirement to use only books you’ve read.

words in deep blueWords in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley

Years ago, Rachel had a crush on Henry Jones. The day before she moved away, she tucked a love letter into his favorite book in his family’s bookshop. She waited. But Henry never came.

Now Rachel has returned to the city—and to the bookshop—to work alongside the boy she’d rather not see, if at all possible, for the rest of her life. But Rachel needs the distraction. Her brother drowned months ago, and she can’t feel anything anymore.

As Henry and Rachel work side by side—surrounded by books, watching love stories unfold, exchanging letters between the pages—they find hope in each other. Because life may be uncontrollable, even unbearable sometimes. But it’s possible that words, and love, and second chances are enough.

Ok, so I haven’t read this book yet… it’s been on my TBR for a little while, and I’ve heard many people singing its praises. I’m not a big fan of contemporary, but this one has a mystery twist to it and sounds really interesting! Plus, I mean… look at the cover! Gorgeous, right? I love the design and all the different shades of blue. I really want to read this book soon!! If you’ve read it, please let me know what you thought about it!

    1. Absolutely! I just saw the notification on Twitter. If you wouldn’t mind linking to any of my posts when you tag me, instead of just my page, that would be awesome! I only get the notification if you link to a specific post. That way I won’t miss it again. Sorry about that! Adding you now 🙂


  1. This sounds like a really interesting book Megan, and it’s one I’ll definitely be adding to my to-read list. I do love contemporaries though and this one sounds like my kind of book! 🙂
    Also I love the cover as well, definitely bright and eye-catching. Here’s hoping the book itself is just as good.
    Great pick for this week! 😀

  2. I personally loved this book and I agree with you on the cover. I thought this to be a very compelling read. I love the romance that doesn’t overcome the plot, the gorgeous settings, the beautiful writing and the memorable themes on the power of words and reading. 🙂

  3. I went to go add this to my TBR and found that it was already on there. Oops. 😂 Either way, this sounds like a great book and I love second chances romances and the whole bookshop setting. And I’m intrigued by the mystery element. Great pick for this week, Megan!! 😊
